It's been a good Wednesday!!

So thankful today that Jesus  used some questions in their spelling workbooks to convict the hearts of two of my little people!! 
I've enjoyed the BJU curriculum this year. It has been nice to sit with them as they watch the classes stream in. It's the first year I've used a school curriculum where everything is DONE and ready to use!! It has been wonderful, and it's really the best year we have had in a long time. 
Here they are before we started school. They were enjoying combining and playing with their beanie babies. 

These questions triggered some real internal questions in these two. 

What have you done for Jesus?
Where will you spend eternity?
Who has paid for your sins?

Here's another question!!
Do I feel blessed to be their momma? 
Yes!!! I do indeed!!

I was praying for and seeking Joy this morning. I had, earlier in the morning, signed up to receive emails from Kay Warren (saddleback church) that will be sent me. It's a series on JOY!! I  was surprised at how quickly I was received the first day's devotional. I sat here with my earphones in while they were watching a class. She gave a definition of 
"The settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of  my life. The quiet confidence that everything is going to be alright and the determined choice to praise God in every situation."

I love both these blessings today!! 

That God would use a simple spelling worktext to bring up these eternal life changing questions in the hearts of my children is a pretty good object lesson for me that I can relax and trust my savior that He wants the best for me and my family. JOY!! JOY!! JOY!!

Kay Warren's site is there particularly for pastors wives, but the first video speaks to all. It's also very short... I would have enjoyed more for sure.

Oh, my plan was to post a food blog today, so here is dinner.

7 red potatoes halved 
1 purple onion chopped
2 packages smoked beef sausage cut into pieces 
Half jar of mild banana peppers 
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Basically, you layer it in the crockpot. I coated the potatoes with oil , salt and pepper and then added the onion. I cooked the sausage in butter and added to the crockpot. I poured some of the vinegar from the peppers into the empty pan to get all the goodness from the bottom. Then I added this to the crockpot .....then half a jar of the peppers on top. It's been cooking on low all day. 

It's been a good Wednesday, y'all!!
